  71. Let's see ... My birthday is in the beginning of December, so I get lots of great presents on my b-day, and then again at Christmas - so sometimes the presents run together over time and I can't remember which one item was for which occasion! As a teenager, my best birthday present was a CD Player that I got for my 16th. birthday. As an adult, many of my birthdays have been great -- this past year I got lots of quilting goodies from my parents, my sister and my hubby! Oh - and I'm a follower of your blog now. I found your blog through a link on Facebook.

  75. One of my favorite birthdays was when my daughter and son-in-law purchased tickets to a 'wine tasting' at Mt. Vernon VA. The tickets included a box lunch so after the tasting we four sat on 'George's Front Porch', listened to a small jazz combo out on the lawn, ate our lunch, sipped our wine and watched the Potomac flow by! I am a friend on your blog. I love Aurifil threads!

  79. W/o a doubt my favorite was on my '27th' b/d in Sept 1977 on 'Labor Day'....my youngest son, Thomas Elton, was born! when he was a toddler, I was telling a friend that Tom was born on my b/d. Tom looked up at us and said, 'but I didn't come in no box.' Where did he get that!!! :-) Anyways, thanks for a chance to win this beautiful thread. It would look great on the wedding quilt I am making for another son and 'dil'. It's called 'the Civil War love Letter Quilt.' TKS bunches.

  81. My favorite birthday gift was from my niece. She called three days before and told me save the evening and that she would be driving up to Missouri from Texas to take my sister and myself out for our birthdays. They are four days apart. She wouldn't tell me where we were going but did give us a general idea of how to dress. After a nice dinner at our favorite resturant she took us downtown to the theater and museum district. She took us to see the most hysterically funny version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Neither my sister or myself thought she even knew what Rocky Horror was but she knew we both loved the movie. Best birthday gift ever!

  134. First of all Happy Birthday! One of my favorite birthday gifts came many years ago when I was in college. My parents and aunt and uncle came to visit complete with cake and gifts. When it was time to leave my dad made sure he was the last to leave, when every one had headed to the car he pulled out a brown paper bag, gave me a kiss on the cheek and was gone. When I got back to my dorm room I opened the bag and there was the child's record of Happy Birthday. I played that on my birthday for several years, it always brought back fond childhood memories. I follow you on Google Friends Connect.

  144. My best birthday gift was my husband coming home for R&R from his 3rd deployment. We went to Vegas and saw the Blue Man Group but the best part was having him safely in my arms. My mind was at ease. My best friend was back, he was right next to me. I could hold his hand, hear him laugh, look into his eyes while he told me he loved me and missed me. We might not have won big in Vegas but I was lucky to have my hubby home for a birthday!

  146. My favorite gift is one I still have and it is now almost in the vintage category. It is a clock radio that my dad bought for me when I went to the store with him on my 13th birthday. It is blue with purple flowers on it and very much for a girl. I had my eye on it for several weeks before my birthday and I know if my mom had been with us I probably wouldn't have gotten it because it cost a little more than she spent on our birthdays. I hope that you have a very Happy Birthday!

  154. My favorite birthday present... hmmm... It might just be fabric money. That way, I get the fun of shopping and choosing and planning and I end up with lots of beautiful fabric in the end :-)
